She is a beauty! How far prgnant with you when u found out about the babies condition?
She is absolutely precious, and I LOVE the new title picture - It is beautiful!
What a joy this morning to sit down at my computer and see the beautiful, beautiful new banner picture on your site!
I like your new family pic. Oceana is beautiful, the last one is the best.. I know you are in such pain right now, it shows through all you write, you are handling it so well. How is Matt doing?? I know men handle things differently. I can't imagine losing a child, I have 4, & 2 grandchildren. They mean more to me than anything, next to God.. Praying for you all. Cathy in Virginia
love it - she is so cute! and the new picture up top is awesome!
THAT picture could be your stand-in Easter family protrait! Gorgeous! Captures all of you...sigh. We miss him too Susie.And, by the way, is there a modeling agency in NZ who needs a little cheeky cherub? I'd check into that if I were you. Just beautiful.
Susie, that photo is gorgeous... well, all of them are ,but that new one in you header is breath-taking.Can't you sleep, dear? I noticed the time. You're 3.5 hours ahead of me (I'm pretty sure) If you have aol or msn and want to chat when you can't sleep, just e-mail me, or on my site there should be an aol mr linky thing. I doubt I'll be any help at all, but I can listen, and perhaps I'm removed enough from it to be someone you can vent all the really hard stuff onto?Praying you get some peace, sweet heart.
Susie, love the new look of the blog, the family picture is great, and Oceana is beautiful. Praying for you!Kristin
What a gorgeous little girl. I can see alot of you in her and alot of Matt. Here's a quote I read today that mde me think of you, "Faith is for that which lies on the other side of reason. Faith is what makes life bearable, with all its tragedies and ambiguities and sudden, startling joys."- Madeleine L'EngleThinking of you,just wanted to let you know we haven't forgotten.-Rach

Love the new header what a great picture!
I have to tell you a funny story about your cheeky little girl...haha. Yesterday she was sitting next to Zac (student) at the mess hall table playing with the salt and pepper shakers, minding her own business. Zac turned his head to talk to someone and while his head was turned, she very slyly and quietly took the pepper shaker and shook it into his drink. As soon as he turned back, she just kept playing with the shakers like nothing had happened!! LOL Too funny!! Look out mum and dad... :)
She's beautiful ! the new pic up top is so cute. Joshua looks adorable in his little pants.
Hi Susie,Oceana is all the things you described and so much more. I love the family picture up top that you just put up. You will always be a family of 4 in my heart. Praying for your move to be smooth this weekend. How exciting to get from God exactly what you asked for. He sure loves you guys. Me too.Laurie in Ca.
I absolutely ADORE your new family picture. You have a beautiful family!Oceana's "cheeky" grin is too cute. What a beauty!

Yes, I agree with Laurie that you will always be a family of four!!! Everyday when I pray, it's for Matt, Susie, Oceana & Joshua. He will always be a very present part of our family even though he is present with the Lord.
